california may not buy a book on robert byrd, but they may buy a book on presidents. there is written on the back, i hope this book is a must read about robert byrd and the u.s. senate and the american presidency. baker caught what i was trying to convey. another factor the approach i took. the eisenhower chapter. another objective is important insights into each presidential administration. west virginia was suffering terribly. west virginia had extreme poverty. a number of other things. there has been talk about the industrial complex. it took me eight years to realize there was an industrial complex. but anyway, the kennedy administration talked about how they worked together. not one book mentions this. a johnson-nixon administrations, think about this. just summarize these. you have a liberal democrat, johnson, and the other was a conservative republican, nixon. byrd is friends with both of them and helps them to get legislation enacted. each of them crossed the line. byrd goes after them hard. i have condensed it. you can read the chapter when byrd goes after johnson. by

sync. it takes a lot of courage for a senator -- california is better than 21 states put together. wyoming, south dakota, north dakota -- they are not. so it takes tremendous courage and backbone for people to stand up. that is the test. leaders lead it. we do not follow. we have had so much since the beginning of the first mass shooting in 1967. these events have proliferated along with the increased technological killing power of weapons that are on the streets. it is a big problem today. >> i might just add, this debate is really only beginning. it has only been a week since this massacre in newtown. the nra will be irrelevant because it cannot be a credible and constructive participant in this debate if they say the only acceptable solution is armed guards in schools. better school security may be part of the solution, but it also has to include a ban on assault weapons which have that kind of firepower that endangers everyone as well as other measures. i think the key question is going to be making america safer. that will be the challenge. ultimately, i think the ark of this

california or texas where i spent most of my adult life. so i'm not sure it's true that everybody has a negative attachment to immigration. but on the other hand, i think the political controversy about immigration much about undocumented immigrants has led people to a negative cast to immigration. i can tell you that the united states as well as europe and many other countries including eventually china because of our current demographic situation, we will turn to immigration increasingly because our ter tilt is approaching below replacement level so immigration will be a necessity. the chinese are thinking about the fact their one child policy is going to lead to them having a much older population soon with fewer children. so immigration becomes another way they can continue the economic vitality of their country. so to me immigration and vitality are closely linked. i think that's true for many business people in the united states and the university. not too sure about the politicians. >> i think we have to remind people the story of america is a story of immigration. some of the mo

very nice pension from the state of california when i was a state police offiercer. we're not putting enough emphasis on what has happened in the last 10 years, seventrillion dollars. what would you do? how long do you think it should take to get out of this mess that the corporate thieves have taken from us? guest: i think that we suffered a tremendous recession, and there has been an enormous loss of wealth. the question is, how do we create more wealth? how do we create more prosperity? if we can create more wealth within the country and our prosperity generally, we can spread that and try to get people back to where they were before. i do not think government does anything to create more wealth and prosperity. an economist said 150 years ago, everyone sees what the government does. the government gives a bunch of money out in programs. everyone sees that and cheers. what they do not see that in order to get that money, the government had to take that money away from other people who do not hire workers now. that is the unseen cost of these government programs. that is what
